Bodyweight BEAST Workout

Bodyweight training is in my blood, just like lifting heavy shit is in my blood.

Ironically, MANY think the two don’t go hand in hand, they believe it’s ONE or the other. Not true my friends, I live for BOTH bodyweight training and the heavy iron. Anyone who thinks differently is missing the boat as each one compliments the other, making you stronger in BOTH arenas.

Here are 2 videos from an 8 round bodyweight circuit of Pull, Push & Jump!

    I like that old school Polish training. Even their warmup was ahead of their time. Looks like dynamic warmup to me. Those dudes were super fit

    And what a paradigm shift compared to today. Imagine the scene-
    “Chillax coach, there’s plenty of time to workout. Just gonna go get a gatorade and check my facebook on my celphone. Be back in 20…”

    Wow, there’s some really cool stuff in that old video. I’m getting into doing more bodyweight stuff recently myself. Awesome post Zach.

    Nice! I just put up a pull up bar in my basement using a 2.5inch pipe I picked up at Home Depot.
    I was using the beams in the basement, but this works the grip more!
    Thick bar and weighted dip belt!Love it!

    Great stuff once again.
    When you box jump why do you dismount from the side instead of back and up again like a typical box jump?

    Thanks for all the stuff.
